Genre poetry

You need to talk about sci-fi poetry. Look at Harvard's list of poetic genres. then Poetry Foundation's list of subjects. So horror poetry, but no SF poetry. and this ties in with Perloff's going after Rita Dove's Norton Anthology. Ethnicity vs. aesthetics, but see Cornelius Eady's poems about Susan Smith's murdering her children and then blaming their deaths on some black man.

How would his flesh feel as you molded it with your fists? Would it be like kneading bread? Shove his body in the oven and cook it with your rage. Break off little pieces and feed them to your children. How does the abuser's blood taste in your mouth? Will you ever get your fill?

haiku May 21

I'm busied by the lilac's scent, the larks' bright yellow, the rain in the grass.

American haiku

Filthy snow outside, but the trees sough, and you smell their wood in the wind.
